10. For Residents of the State of California

This section addresses the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), which provides additional rights and protections related to personal information of qualified California residents. This section does not apply to Leadiant USA personnel or to California residents whose information we obtain in business-to-business interactions.

Under the CCPA, Leadiant USA is required to describe what information it has collected and how it has disclosed personal information to third parties for business or commercial purposes over the past twelve (12) months. The personal information we collect about consumers and the business or commercial purposes for which it will be used are described in the following sections of our Policy:

  • What Personal Information Do We Collect?
  • How We Use Cookies
  • How We Obtain Your Personal Information
  • How We Use Your Personal Information
  • Why and with Whom We Share Your Personal Information

This Privacy Notice is updated annually and was last updated on June 23, 2020. It applies to our current practices. It also applies to our practices over the twelve (12) months preceding that last update (except as this Privacy Notice may otherwise specify).

Additional information to comply with CCPA-required disclosures include the following:
A) “Do Not Sell My Data” The CCPA requires companies to provide California residents a “Do Not Sell My Data” opt-out option, as well as an opt-in option for minors under 16 years of age. Leadiant USA does not and will not sell the personal information we collect and therefore we do not include these options on our website.
B) “Request to Know & Request to Delete” If you are a California resident covered by the CCPA, you are permitted to (1) request that Leadiant USA disclose to you your personal information that we collect, use, sell or disclose, and to (2) request that we delete your personal information. You may also ask us to provide your personal information in portable format. You also have the option to designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf or there may be authority to act on another’s behalf by operation of law (e.g. lawful guardian in case of a minor or power or attorney).

You may submit a request to Leadiant by completing the CCPA Request Form. The CCPA Request Form may be obtained at or by sending us a request for that Form by email, at Once completed, it can be submitted in one of the following ways: (1) at or (2) email, at You may also choose to mail the completed form to us at Leadiant Biosciences, Inc., 530 Gaither Rd., Suite 300, Rockville, MD 20850, Attn: Data Privacy Officer. Alternatively, you may contact us at (800) 447-0169, Ext 3, and we will mail you a copy of the relevant request form.

After you submit the completed CCPA Request Form, we will acknowledge receipt of your request within ten (10) business days and seek certain information from you to verify your identity (and also your authority to make the request on another’s behalf, if applicable), including information that will enable us to confirm that you are a California resident.

If verification has been successful, we will then respond within legally mandated timeframes. Our response may be to provide the information requested, or to make the requested deletion. In some instances, our response may advise that a legal exemption applies and we are not able to comply with the request (such as for a request to delete).

You have a right not to receive discriminatory treatment by Leadiant for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA. We will not discriminate against a California consumer for exercising any of the rights described in this section. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

If you have any concerns or would like more information regarding these rights, please contact the Data Privacy Officer by email at or call (800) 447 0169, Ext 3.

11. Personal Information of Minors

We do not knowingly obtain personal information from children under 16 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. If we learn that personal information from users less than 16 years of age has been collected without the consent of their parent or guardian, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 16, please contact us as explained below under “Contact Information.”

12. Our Changes to this Policy

Leadiant USA reserves the right to amend this Policy from time to time, such as to reflect technological advancements, legal and regulatory changes, and our business practices, subject to applicable laws. If Leadiant USA changes its privacy practices, an updated version of this Privacy Policy will be posted on our Website and all changes to this Policy shall become fully effective immediately, unless otherwise noted. We therefore encourage you to view any amendments when you visit our Website from time to time to stay informed of how we are using your personal information.
